As you reflect on today’s readings, keep Baptism in mind. Water is a mighty force of nature. It can nourish our bodies and the ground or destroy everything in its path. In Baptism, everything unclean in us is destroyed and we are nourished with the Living Water. Ezekiel’s vision tells of the abundance where the river flows. Christ is the Living Water that brings us life. Today’s Readings: Ezekiel 47:1– 9, 12; Psalm 46:2 – 3, 5 – 6, 8 – 9; John 5:1–16.
